Prime Minister Lars Løkke has recently suggested it, but now it's official. The Minister of Finance makes a dramatic revision of the forecast of refugees and family reunifications to Denmark, according to the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.
The flow of refugees - who will never return - means that the government now makes a significant upgrade of its population forecast for the coming years.
"In the updated population forecast, the population is expected to increase by almost 100,000 people by 2020 compared to the population forecast of May last year," writes Finance Minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen, in a reply to the Parliamentary Finance Committee.
According to the Finance Minister answers to the Parliament, the previous forecast from May last year is definitely wrong. Now the government expects that the population will grow by 97,000 people more than what was expected a year ago.
In the previous forecast it was expected that there would come 22,000 refugees and family reunifications for refugees to Denmark in the period 2016-2020.
Now, however, the expected number is 119,000, according to the answer from Claus Hjort.
Could ruin Denmark
According to Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, the high number of refugees, could ruin Denmark's cohesion in all dimensions, if the newcomers do not to a much greater extent than today become self-supporting. By working instead of sitting at home on benefits.
The vast majority of users of the welfare benefit system in Denmark, are people with refugee and immigrant backgrounds, shows another report from the newspaper.
A statement from the Ministry of Employment shows that among all married couples where both partners are on social assistance, 84 percent of the users are of non-Western origin.
